This delightful country town is located high on the Northern Tablelands of the Great Dividing Range. At 1330 metres above sea level, Guyra attracts many visitors during the depths of winter to enjoy the frequent snow falls. It is this altitude and its associated climate which helped Guyra to become a major potato growing area and more recently well known as home to the largest glasshouse in the southern hemisphere with horticulture and truss tomatoes the crop of the 21st century. There are places to stay, from pretty campsites, caravan parks and riverside cabins to comfy motels, B&Bs and farm stays.
Mother of Ducks Lagoon on the edge of town is a birdwatchers’ (and picnickers’) paradise and the lagoon is a well-known camping area for RV’s and caravans.
History and heritage are of interest too. Pastoralists arrived in the area in the 1830’s and the town was established in 1880. The railway stopped running years ago but the cute station building is now the Guyra Antique Machinery Railway Museum and the old Shire Council Chambers is home to the Historical Museum.
